As much as you may hate or love them, you can't argue the Kardashians are (shockingly) still ubiquitous and constantly making headlines. The eldest sister of the (in)famous clan recently put her Calabasas, CA home on the market, and quickly made the blog and gossip rounds. I myself have mixed thoughts towards the famous family--which I'll make a veiled attempt at hiding--but presumptions aside, I begrudgingly admit I enjoy her house's interior. It relies a little heavily on a black-and-white scheme for my tastes, but it seems to run in the family (e.g., Kris Jenner and Khloe Kardashian). Here's my take on the images Domaine Home managed to snag.
...like I mentioned, it's a lot of black and white (and it's just the beginning). But this is coming from a man with black-and-white chevron walls in my bedroom, so I can't say it's something I would never do. I would prefer to see a different rug, and possibly a different finish other than black on the fireplace. I would also love to see the pendant fixtures staggered more randomly or clustered closer together.
Ram head table bases are a guilty pleasure of mine, so I'm immediately obsessed with the table. I like the surprising choice of head chairs at the table--I like the juxtaposition of the casual wicker chairs with the updated Queen Anne-style side chairs. The use of chevron in both rooms gets to be a bit busy for me.
We once more see chevron, but I enjoy it more on a small flat surface (i.e., roman shades versus curtains). The marbleized wallpaper is fabulous, and adds the perfect texture in this space. The neon art is a fun twist to an over-the-bed piece, although I'd imagine it could potentially be quite annoying at night! The scale of the bedside lamps are spot on, but I'm not as crazy about the dressers they sit upon.
Ok, by now I'm officially over the chevron window coverings. With the ottoman, couch, rug, and windows all having a patter and/or texture, it gets a bit too busy for me. The coffee table is kind of amazing on its own, but I would have chosen a different table (something lower and not black).
I love a busy wallpaper, but this is a little over the line even for me--to do a whole room in this is overwhelming, but it would work in moderation. The metal and leather chairs on the left are great, and I'm always a sucker for decorative horns. Not much else stands out for me in the room; I feel like more could have been done with that great rounded fireplace, and my eye immediately goes to the dead space above the television (which is further hindered by the too-high floral arrangement on the coffee table).
And there we have it, some highlights of Kourtney Kardashian's home. I reiterate that I think it's kind of undeniably fabulous, no matter your style or taste. It wasn't perfectly executed, but has many great elements. I'm sure Kourtney will have a blast decorating her new home, and I am hopeful there's less reliance on black and white. I'll no doubt catch the reveal in the next season of "Keeping up with the Kardashians," which, yes, I'll be watching. Judge me now.
